Philosophy Vanilla Birthday Cake Shampoo, Shower Gel, & Bubble Bath

Brand: Philosophy

Product: 3-in-1 shampoo, shower gel, & bubble bath

Price: $16.00

Link To Product: Sephora

What It Does: The unbelievable scent of a freshly baked vanilla cake has been captured in this rich shower gel formula. The too-good-for-words scent offers you a delectable shower experience for superior bath time fun. Celebrate this 100 percent calorie free option for starting your day - sprinkles optional.
Scent: vanilla frosting

Texture: a watery cream

Review:  I actually received this product free as Sephora gives "beauty insiders" a free 6 oz bottle during their birthday month.  I'm not really a fan of these 3-in-1 type products.  They're usually decent as body washes but never really lather enough for bubble baths or shampoos.  Same goes for this one by Philosophy.  Its watery cream texture works well with a pouf sponge for a body wash, but doesn't offer enough bubbles for a bubble bath.  It does have decent moisturizing properties as the cream sinks nicely into the skin.  I haven't even attempted it on my hair because I already know what to expect.

As for the smell, don't expect the delicious vanilla cupcake smell that Philosophy advertises.  Frankly it smells more like cheap vanilla frosting.  I'm talking about the kind you find on grocery store cupcakes.  But not to worry because its scent doesn't even linger on the skin (which would normally be a problem!).

Well all in all it's a decent enough body wash -- I'm not sure I would pay the $16 for the full size bottle but who am I to complain about a free gift?

Thanks for the review! I've always been curious about this product. I always see it up near the register at Sephora and was wondering how it would work!
